If your child is injured in an accident that you were also involved in, you don’t have to limit yourself to making a claim on your own behalf, but you can also make road accident claims in Southend-on-Sea on behalf of your child.
It can be a little more difficult and take a little longer to make a claim for a child, but in the long run it is worthwhile as it helps you to get the money that you need for medical bills, childcare and other help around the house whilst your child needs it. Here are some tips for making compensation claims on behalf of your child.
Hire a great injury lawyer
To make the claims process much easier on both you and your child, hire a great injury lawyer who has lots of experience in the field of personal injury compensation claims.
Your injury lawyer should generally be able to take on as much of the claim as possible so that the child isn’t forced to get too involved as the claim progresses. A good injury lawyer will work hard to ensure that the child doesn’t have to be too involved in the claim at all.
Decide when you need the money
With compensation claims for children, you may be able to get the money right away, or this money may be held until the child turns 18 so that they can do as they wish with it. If you need the money for medical bills and so on then let your lawyer know right away so that they can let the court know this as soon as possible.
